Liberia’s new rape law:
The new law… broadens the definition of rape to included “penetration by any foreign object not just a penis.” Anyone under 18 is “automatically deemed not to have given consent”. Gang rape carries a penalty of life imprisonment.
I’m concerned a tad about the under 18s automatically not being allowed to give consent, but I’m uncertain as to the context. Is that only if she comes forward with a rape charge? What if her family does?
Otherwise, great. Now I hope she makes it safer for women to come forward.
